Who We Are

Join our heart-centered, collaborative, and supportive team as a Staff Acupuncturist. This position frees you to focus on treating patients, while we take care of the rest. Our team will handle attracting patients, marketing, insurance claims processing, and generating income. We encourage all qualified acupuncturists to apply, and we will guide you through the District of Columbia licensing process.

We are staffing a new type of acupuncture clinic – one that values the work of a diverse and collaborative team, eliminates competition, recognizes the challenges our profession faces, and makes conscious efforts to change the profession as well as the healthcare ecosystem. Our generative model prioritizes the work of the team and clinic over the work of each individual practitioner, and every member of our team is a valuable asset – from our cleaning staff to our administrative support staff to our clinical team to our managers.

Our Staff Acupuncturists are paid hourly with a pay rate above the Washington DC regional average. Our benefits package includes paid time off, holidays, malpractice insurance coverage, and company-sponsored 401k/Profit Sharing program. This position qualifies for advancement to an Associate Acupuncturist after 18-24 months.

In alignment with our Mission and Vision, we accept a wide range of patients and insurances. Acceptance of these patients and insurances are a conscious effort to position our clinic to take advantage of Acupuncture for our Seniors Act (H.R. 4803) when it finally becomes law.

Our clinic is one of the top-reviewed Chinese Medicine clinics in downtown Washington DC. We are a high-volume clinic, and practitioners may treat up to 3 patients per hour with a weekly average of over 50 treatments per week. Our intuitive electronic health record system allows our staff to streamline patient intakes, SOAP notes, and insurance billing while allowing the clinical team to easily read and understand each other’s patient notes.

If these features sound appealing and you would like to join our innovative and collaborative team, please complete the application below.
